What’s New in EPCOT: A Club Cool Mystery, Hidden Trolls, and a FREE Tour!

We hope you’re sitting down, because there’s a LOT to cover at Disney World today! From new health and safety updates to returning restaurants, there’s been a ton of news coming from Disney lately. Today, we’re here to talk about EPCOT! It’s amazing how many NEWthings we manage to find in just one week. If only our local Target had this many new items on a weekly basis…on second thought, that could be dangerous for our wallets, so it’s probably for the best.

Greetings from EPCOT!

Let’s take a (virtual) trip around EPCOT to see what’s new!

EPCOT merchandise updates

Basin Booth—World Showcase

We found TONS (seriously, we got super excited) of new Flower & Garden Festival-exclusive items at the Basin booth in the EPCOT World Showcase.

Stock up on tea with the new Twinings tea collection for $29.99. It comes with 48 tea bags, so it should last for a little while!
